Every mother in the world wants the best for her child, irrespective of her background and her position in life at the time of the child’s birth. Unfortunately, sometimes it is simply not possible for the mother to be able to cater to the multidimensional needs of the child all by herself.
In some cases, the mother cannot provide financial stability, while in other cases she might not yet be emotionally ready to raise a child. Whether it is one of these reasons, a combination of the two, or even some other factor altogether, adoption can very well be just the right option for both the mother and her baby.
As a mother, I want to guarantee health, wealth and happiness for my child. All three of these essentials require monetary resources, as well as love. I would strive to gather enough of both to fulfill all his needs, but when I can see that I would definitely fall short in one way or another, I would prefer that my child still gets everything he deserves, even if I am not the provider.
When I see my friend’s children or my coworkers with their children, my heart fills with a peculiar kind of joy. Seeing them living a safe and progressive life reiterates my belief in the fact that the first and foremost duty of a good parent is to put their child ahead of themselves. Thus, even the sadness that comes from separation from your child is wiped out in this way.
As a mother, I also know that even if adoption was not an option, my child and I would have to part ways at some point as it is only natural for children to grow up and move out in order to build their own lives. Hence, from a purely logical perspective, it only makes sense to give my child a head start by making all necessary tools for success accessible to them. The rest, as they say, is all’s well that ends well.
